Mommy Monday

Hey, Momma! Looking for something to do with the kiddos this Independence Day that isn’t popping fireworks? I’ve rounded up some awesome American-themed activities (thanks, Pinterest!) to keep your kiddos busy and in the patriotic spirit!

Playdough to Plato has an amazing exploding pop rocket activity that’s not only fun, but also educational!

I know some moms are 110% done with making slime, but for those of you that aren’t, check out this Star Spangled Slime from I Can Teach My Child!

Summer is great time to do messy crafts outdoors! The kids get to go crazy and you don’t have to worry about cleaning up after them! This shaving cream firework craft (also from I Can Teach My Child) can be done in the backyard and then cleaned up with a run through the sprinkler! Everybody wins!

Learning 4 Kids has an awesome way for kiddos that may not like the sound of firecrackers to still get in on the fun! Plus, you probably have all the necessary items already!

Would you rather keep the festivities simple? Babies to Bookworms has a great list of Fourth of July books that will keep your kid’s attention and let them learn!
